Denver Rental License Inspections

“Healthy Residential Rentals for All”

Denver’s new Residential Rental License Policy has passed city council. While this is a big change for the city, it joins over 60% of the country by having some type of rental licensing program.

The main goal of the program is to ensure that renters are living in safe and healthy homes in an environment where rental rates have substantially outpaced incomes.

Ever since the rental program began, we have been at the forefront, providing the required rental license inspections. Our company has been providing rental license inspections in the city of Boulder for the last 10+ years, which gives us the experience needed to offer an efficient and scalable Denver Rental License Inspection service.

At Scott Rental Inspections, a division of Scott Home Services, LLC, we are offering inspections now and have 6 certified inspectors! Call or schedule today.
